What to expect upon arrival of your first treatment?

During the preliminary consultation, your therapist will go through a health questionnaire to ensure that there are no current or previous conditions that may prevent you from having a safe and effective treatment.

Once all subjective information is collected physical tests will then be carried out to establish the probable causative factor to your problem which will be vital in selecting appropriate treatment.

All patients should endeavour to arrive 10 minutes prior to treatment time to guarantee the treatment can start on time

Payment Method

Payment methods accepted are cash or card which should be paid to your therapist at the end of your treatment.

Cancellation Procedure

Please let your practitioner know 24 hours in advance if you wish to cancel or reschedule, however it can’t be certain whether there will be availability upon rescheduling.

Is the treatment painful?

With some deeper techniques, you may experience some discomfort depending on the state of your muscles. However, treatment is always monitored closely and performed within your own pain threshold.

Therefore, during a treatment, you will be repeatedly asked to reference your perceived pain to ensure that you can relax throughout the entire session whilst the most effectual treatment is being applied.

What should I wear?

Comfortable clothing such as T-shirt/ shorts specifically dependent on which areas are being treated. During the treatment, you will be covered with a towel with only the region being treated exposed to the therapist.

There may be occasions where you may be asked to dress down accordingly, however the therapist will always assure that they leave the room to thoroughly respect your dignity.

It’s also best practice that ladies wear a normal bra as opposed to a sports bra, as it’s easier to work around.

How many treatments will I need?

This is completely dependent on findings presented from your objective assessment. It is generally recommended that you have regularly treatments as a preventative measure to injury once a month.

How old must I be to receive with treatment?

Legally those who are under the age of 18 must have a legal guardian/ chaperone present to give consent on behalf of the patient.
